Tropical chickens
by Pete on August 28th, 2011

Despite all the dire warnings of pending doom and gloom from Tropical Storm Irene - the birds and other beasts are fairing just fine. The meat chickens from the cow pasture on Route 2 were harvested yesterday and they seem just dandy in the cooler! This morning I collected eggs and visited with the egg layers while the wind was howling and the rain teaming down...but the hens didn't seem to mind all that much. Many of them were eagerly hunting for juicy earthworms in the developing puddles and moist earth. Some were just standing outside like penguins with faces to the wind seemingly to enjoy the wind and rain in their faces. We have plenty of shelter for the birds both under the coops and inside where it's dry and comfortable but these laying ladies seem to enjoy being out in the elements.
